We all know Oscar winning director Anthony Minghella has just passed away recently. Surprisingly two weeks before his surgery, he left a testament wishing Shekhar Kapur who’s also his good friend to direct a short film that he’s already written.
Who can forget his “The English Patient” which won 9 Oscars back in 1997 (which is still a record to date). The way he portrayed the beauty of women is just ravishing (remember how he used the part between a woman’s throat and collar bone to represent a map of men’s desire?) It was poetry.
Also, his first movie Truly Madly Deeply back in 1990 was on both the charts of most popular and least popular in the UK. As he said, the best movies are between the best and the worst
Shekhar Kapur is now taking over Minghella’s New York I Love You which stars Scarlet Johansson, Natalie Portman, Woody Allen, Kevin Bacon, and more. While some of the segments have begun filming, Minghella had not gotten a chance to cast or shoot the segment he had written. The New York piece is by the producers of Paris Je t’aime, this time having each person to direct a 5 minute film to portray their love towards New York.

It’s been around for a while but since the Film Festival is coming, I figured I should do a piece on it. Directed by Todd Haynes, the Bob Dylan biopic I’m Not There garnered attention early for using six actors to portray Dylan over seven different stages of his life. With the untimely death of Heath Ledger (one of the seven Dylans), it’s gotten even more attention. The ultimate question still remans why give the Dylans different names.
In case you still didn’t know, here are the six actors who play the Dylan Sevens:
